I have fond memories of this theater as a child growing up in Jacksonville.I remember my older sister taking me there in 1974 to see THE TOWERING INFERNO when it opened.I remember the rocking chairs and as a 7 year old at the time how they were the coolest things.I also remember that at the concession stand they used to see an orange drink served in a plastic orange.Like many others I saw JAWS with my dad and two of my cousins in that theater.Almost a decade later I remember during my sophomore year at nearby Terry Parker High School going on a 10th grade English field trip to the Regency Twin to see a special showing of TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD with Gregory Peck as a joint educational venture with Duval County Schools as part of the 1oth grade English curriculum.I am not sure if it was known as the Cineplex Odeon/Plitt theater yet or not.
